1966 Ford


3 Speed Manual
289 V8


1966 was the first year for Emberglow Metallic on the Mustang, and this coupe proves that everything old is new again. Suddenly a very contemporary look, with a handsome Parchment Pony interior, this A-code coupe is a wonderful car to cruise in this summer.

OK, so this car's original color was Sauterne Gold , but the bronze Emberglow looks as good today as it did almost 50 years ago. Don't call it brown, because it has a lot of metallic copper in it, and the lights in our studio just don't do it justice. Out in the sunlight, however, the color comes alive with brilliant highlights and a depth that only comes from quality workmanship. You've probably seen similar colors on late-model Ford trucks, and it looks every bit as flashy on the early Mustang sheetmetal. It was refinished not too long ago, and shows a few custom touches like the black rockers that visually lengthen the car, a few shaved trim pieces, and a blacked-out grille. The remaining chrome and stainless are excellent for their age; the bumpers are shiny chrome, the rocker panel trim is straight and bright, the stainless window moldings are undamaged. A Parchment padded roof is an excellent, elegant choice with the bronze paint, giving the car a unique, high-fashion look that totally works.

Inside, the Emberglo Crinkle vinyl and Parchment Crinkle Vinyl Pony interior has been recently restored, including new seat covers, carpets, and door panels. No, that's not a custom job, that's how the factory did it and is one of the most spectacular interiors ever worn by a Mustang. The Pony interior included the embossed horse design on the seat backs, which is crisp and clear on the reproduction covers, and the foam underneath is comfortable. That's a factory center console that houses the shifter for the 3-speed manual transmission, which is just what the door tag says it should have. The gauges appear to be excellent original pieces, and the factory AM radio still lives in the dash, with an original-style A/C unit underneath. The trunk is neatly finished with a reproduction mat, full-sized spare, and a matching cover.

Ford didn't stamp VINs on the engines, so there's no way of knowing if an early Mustang is 100% matching numbers, but given the condition of the car, it's reasonable to assume that the A-code 289 currently under the hood is the original. Upgraded with a Holley Street Avenger 4-barrel carburetor, it runs beautifully and moves the lightweight little coupe effortlessly with great V8 sounds. Correct Ford Blue paint, a stock air cleaner assembly, and no signs of rust or damage make for a confidence-building engine bay. Underneath, it offers a brand new dual exhaust system with glasspacks and turndowns just ahead of the rear axle (which has 3.00 gears inside), solid floors, and the stock suspension has been freshened with new shocks. It rides on a set of cool 17-inch wheels that pay tribute to the Torque Thrust wheels of the past but with a modern twist, and they're shod with 235/45/17 Hankook radials.

If you've been looking for a solid V8 Mustang with a manual transmission, why not pick something a little unusual with this lovely copper coupe? Call today!
